Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

New Netpresenter Release: Message Server 17.5 is here! We have worked hard to make our employee communication platform even more accessible and versatile for you. As a result, we can show some great improvements and additions to the functionalities of our platform. Keep reading to discover what’s new!

QR Codes for digital signage

We’ve made redirecting all of your employees to a website, registration form, additional information, your intranet, or other (external) sources even easier: you can now add a QR code to your digital signage messages.

With this new feature, a URL added as a hyperlink in a message created in the Message Server will be automatically converted into a QR code. The QR code is immediately visible on your TV screens and allows your audience to use their phones to read a full message or view more information after scanning it.

From now on, your entire workforce can easily access additional information. Your desk workers can click a link in the Desktop App or Screensaver, field workers use their Mobile App, and your non-desk workers can scan the QR code displayed on your TV screens. This means everyone is up to date on all of the information. Time to start scanning!

We have extended the time period of our statistics. The number of published messages is now visible for 12 months. The time range of the engagement details can be set to 7, 30, 120, or 365 days.
